Weird idling at random times

Well every once in a while I get this odd camming action when I start up car usually when it's warm already it happens about 3-4 times a month but goes away after about 10 secs of idle time, I don't have any performance problems or mileage problems so whatever it is is not major I would assume

First thing I thought vaccumm lines, checked and clamped ALL of them, it would have to be intensional for that to be it now

It just happened today (tonight lol) and I checked new extension I put in intake, I wanted filter back in fender well, first and it was still clamped down tight so I'm lost as to what might be the cause now, any thoughts people??

Edit: what about IAC starting to go out? Could that cause random idle problems with a weeks time in between?

Consider this could be an EVAP purge issue. Would certainly explain the apparent random nature of the event.
